What Sets Us Apart…
Continuity of Care
Physical Therapists at Top Tier Sports Medicine offer a highly innovative approach to patient recovery and rehabilitation. Our therapists are very involved in each of their patients particular therapy needs. Continuity of care is key with returning our patients to their prior level of function, it is our goal for the patient to work with the same Physical Therapist throughout their duration of care.
Ability to Reach GOALS
Each visit the patient makes to our facility, their progress is documented in our EMR (Electronic Medical Record) a tool for improving communication with the referring physician as well as allowing the therapist to thoroughly monitor and track the patients overall ability to reach their original goals established in the initial evaluation.
This instills a high level of confidence in the patient that they are receiving the highest quality and most thorough treatment available. Patient education is a critical component in arriving at a functional and pain-free lifestyle. Our therapists teach the patient how to maximize their recovery rate by providing a comprehensive home exercise program.

I was a patient of Curtis Crook, Clinic Director at Top Tier Sports Medicine in Indialantic FL from February through April, 2019. My physical therapy treatment was for recovery from an Achilles tendon rupture surgical repair performed in spring of 2018. Before coming to Curtis, continuing physical issues with my tendon had delayed PT and inhibited my ability to walk fluidly and without placing harmful stresses on other parts of my body in compensating for the injury and associated weakness. Curtis immediately set out a continually aggressive physical therapy plan for me that was challenging but brought almost immediate physical (and mental) positive results. In the course of two months, I advanced from timidity in performing basic walking and exercise to being able to jog and spring, with near full strength recovered on my affected side. As a life-long and active physical fitness and sports buff, my injury weighed on my ability to do those things that I enjoy and “used to do” and now, through Curtis’s help, I am on the path to regaining what I had before the injury. Curtis’s professional knowledge and patient awareness is top-notch, that’s for certain, but the manner in which he engaged and put me at ease was the added ingredient that made my therapy successful. I am indebted to him and his fine staff for their kindness, enthusiasm and good graces in most effectively executing on their specialty. Curtis stands out as a dedicated professional in the field he loves and in which he performs so well. In his absence now that my PT at Top Tier is completed, I am committed to continuing on and anticipate making a full recovery due to the manner in which he has motivated me. Thank you Curtis!

I am more than certain that I would not be a runner today without the vast knowledge and therapy from Chris Wicker at Top Tier Sports Medicine. I had all but given up running in August of 2017. Chris and Jeremy Stewart found out that I was at the end of my rope with a hip / hamstring issue and put me on a treatment plan. I was SO amazed. I'd been to various doctors in Brevard, had cortisone, chiropractic care, strength work -- nothing else had worked for me. I am happy to report that I am still a happy and healthy runner as of the writing of this testimonial, October, 2018. Thank you, TTSM!

"I came to Top Tier Sports Medicine in December 2016 after hearing positive things about Jeremy Stewart's success with helping runner's overcome injuries and issues. I had been dealing with lower back pain for over a year and was at my wit's end in finding a solution that would alleviate the constant hurting and stiffness. In the month and half that Jeremy worked with me, I watched him treat other runners like myself but I also saw that he's excellent in rehabilitating people and athletes from all different sports, like golf, basketball, soccer and baseball. That's one of the things that's so remarkable about Jeremy. He has the ability to zone right in on your issues and formulate a plan that works for you. My back pain was not lifted immediately. In fact, it got a little worse around Christmas. At times I wondered if I was just going through the motions and then it happened...the pain subsided and my back started to feel normal again. It wasn't stiff and I could actually sleep at night without all the aching. Months later, I'm still reaping the benefits of Jeremy's work. I diligently do the exercises he put together for me. Although I miss going in for treatments at Top Tier with it's a fun, easy-going atmosphere and wonderful staff, I am so happy to be back to having a healthy back."

“My rotator cuff surgery was eight weeks ago and my post-surgery physical therapy had already been prearranged with the surgeon. After seven weeks, my PT sessions came to an end and I found that I still needed additional therapy. I consulted with Jeremy Stewart at TTSM and have been able to extend my physical therapy sessions. I’ve seen more recovery in one week than I thought was possible. I’m very happy to have found TTSM.”
